It talks about youth hockey and the coaching/training some kids receive and how being born early in the year puts you against younger kids and you look better, hence get the special attention....pretty cool and substantial.
Nope. I just read the wiki and it looks good. It may be up next.
I got about half way through it and then it became kind of a reach. It kind of outlines some major achievers in history and the things in their background that set them up for success. Bill gates and the sun microsystems guy (i think that was the company name) were great stories, so was the one about the beatles. But i lost interest in the story about eastern european clothesmakers or taillors, something boring and uninteresting.
